    Champion, thanks for the informative reply Lucas. The amount of carbon in those pics is insane for only 35K.

    Thanks so much for your response. Did it make any noticeable difference having it done and would you know if a diesel motor is any worse to clean using this technique than a petrol motor?

    I just...
  3. Carbon cleaning without intake manifold removal

    I've done a tonne of reading about decarbonising the inlet on my GTI and was resigned to the fact that the intake manifold would have to come off to do it properly.

    Has anyone ever tried this...

    G12evo is what I was sold about a year ago for my Mk6 GTI (and I noted the same thing as the OP with what is on the reservoir vs the manual).

    Got the ATE pads and rotors to replace the originals on the front of my Mk 6 GTI and am loving them (especially the lack of dust). The rotors come with a coating but no real instructions for burning...
